Sporting event What's New in Montréal

After several years of working behind the scenes, the Montréal sports community has created a flagship organization to represent sport on the Island of Montréal. It’s called the Conseil du sport de Montréal (the Montréal Sports Council).

The new flagship organization brings together and mobilizes players and organizations for a strong and unified voice. All to position Montréal as a global leader in athletics.

“The ports Council wants to make Montréal a sports metropolis recognized locally and internationally," says Danièle Sauvageau, President of the Board of Directors of the Conseil du sport de Montréal.

A mission to support and excel

This initiative is led by Excellence sportive de l'île de Montréal (ESIM), an organization with a mission to contribute to the development of high-level sport and the influence of the island of Montréal by working on three axes: athletes, events, and synergy.

The new Conseil du sport de Montréal exists to support organizations that promote sport development, from discovery to excellence. In particular, it serves associations, clubs, multisport organizations, sports federations and sports programs in schools, colleges and universities. It also integrates the high-level sports programs and services offered by ESIM.

More specifically, the Conseil du sport de Montréal has the mission to:

  • Defend and promote the interests of organized sport with administrative and political authorities at local, municipal, provincial, and national levels
  • Support sports organizations towards sound governance, integrity and ethics
  • Act as a one-stop-shop to direct sports organizations to available resources

And the logo is looking good

The council was officially launched in December during the 2020 Montréal Sport Summit, a virtual event that brought together more than 400 participants through a day of conferences, panels and workshops on various themes related to sport in the city of Montréal.

During the summit, participants had access to the unveiling of the Conseil du sport de Montréal’s brand identity. Here’s a glimpse into the visual language.
